Volkswagen Tiguan review from Consumer Reports
The Volkswagen Tiguan small SUV doesn't come cheap, but it has athletic handling and a high-quality interior. The SEL's 19" tires hurt ride and noise. Learn more about the Volkswagen Tiguan and other SUVs on our website: http://bit.ly/mrUjq1

2013 and 2014 Buick Encore Review and Road Test with IntelliLink Infotainment Review
Buick's been on a roll this year, their sales are up and their owner demographics are younger than they have been in recent memory. The cynic in my says that's because half their clientele died of old age, but it has more to do with their product portfolio. Say what? Yep, it's true, the brand I wrote off for dead last decade is targeting younger buyers with designs imported from Europe and finding sales success. The Verano turbo shattered my preconceptions, but can Buick do it again? A brown Encore arrived one rainy morning to see if it was possible. The Encore isn't new, but neither is it an American rehash of a tired Euro model. Instead, it is "badge engineering" 21st century style. When I was a kid you knew a new Buick was coming when Chevy or Oldsmobile announced a new product. You also knew what to expect: the same sheetmetal with a Buick logo on the grille and some padded velour thrones. 30 years later Buick is up to the same old game with an important twist: Buick takes Opel models from Europe. Consequently you won't find a brother-from-another-mother running around with a Chevy logo. Like its sister-ship, the Opel Mokka, the Encore is a small crossover/hatchback closely related to GM's other small car offerings. Euro origins are obvious when you park the Encore in an American parking spot, this Buick is tiny. The Encore's tall profile further accentuates the Encore's 168-inch overall length, which is surprisingly 6-inches longer than a MINI Countryman. The Encore isn't a terribly expensive crossover starting at $24,950 and ending at $31,110 for a full-loaded AWD model. Despite the low starting price, the cabin makes extensive use of soft touch plastics lending a more premium feel to the cabin than vehicles like the MINI Countryman, Acura TSX or Lexus CT. Speaking of MINI, the Countryman, (like the rest of the MINI lineup) is a mixture of trickle-down BMW technology, great switchgear, high-style, cheesy plastics and chintzy headliners. Of course MINI's biggest asset is brand perception while Buick's brand is more of a liability in some demographics. That's really a shame because the Encore has not only a quality feel but a very uniform feel as well. While MINI's cabins are full of highs and lows, everything in the Encore is consistently a notch above the rabble. Equipping the Contryman and Encore as closely as possible reveals the Encore is about $1,500 cheaper once you add to the MINI the features standard on the Encore. Comparing the top-trim of the Encore to the MINI the difference grows to $3,800 in the Encore's favor. Want AWD? The difference grows by about three-grand. The Encore may be small, but the interior is spacious thanks to the tall profile, stubby nose and upright seats. Taller folks will have no problems getting into or out of the front or rear seats thanks to large door openings and a low step-in height. I grabbed a few willing tall people for lunch and successfully (and comfortably) took two 6'5" passengers, one 6'2 gentleman and myself (6') on a 50 minute trek to the prefect burger joint without a single complaint. Because the Encore shares seat frames with GM sedans, there are a few compromises. The lack of a power recline mechanism seems odd, especially considering the 2-positon memory seat found in our tester. Using the sale seat frames and rails as a sedan or coupé meant creating some unusual "platforms" in the floor stamping so the seats could be mounted high to get an SUV-like seating position. Consequently the rear footwells might be a problem for big-footed passengers on long trips. A manual front passenger seat is standard, but most models on dealer lots have the optional power seat The Encore uses the same 1.4L four-cylinder engine as the Chevy Sonic and Cruze. Producing 140 HP at 4,900 RPM this mill isn't targeted at speed addicts. On the bright side, thanks to a turbocharger and some direct-injection magic, the engine manages 148 lb-ft of twist from 1,850-4,900RPM and under certain circumstances it will allow an "overBoost" to 163 lb-ft over the same range for up to 10 seconds. My opinion of the diminutive engine changed constantly during my week with the Encore. In the city the low-end torque provided by the turbo and the low first gear make easy work of 0-40 MPH traffic and the Encore effortlessly zipped into narrow gaps on busy expressways. Thanks to the way the throttle is mapped the engine doesn't feel out of breath cruising on the highway, until you need to pass someone as getting from 60 to 80 MPH takes a Prius-like 8 seconds. Load the Encore up with two people and some luggage and forward progress is noticeably stunted in all situations. However, every time I wished for more power I glanced down at my fuel economy and was reminded that more power consumes more gasoline. Music by Kevin MacLeod





Bad-Ass Buick: 1955 Special - /BIG MUSCLE
Owner: • Harry Fisher In stock form, the 1955 Buick Special could best be described as a "nice" car. It's not drop dead gorgeous like a 1959 Impala, nor does it have the panache of say a 1956 Chrysler 300. You see the '55 Buick Special was a working mans car. It had room enough for the whole family, a decent power-plant thanks to its 264 cubic inch V8, and style that was, well... above average. Harry Fisher or "Uncle Harry" as most people know him, saw the old Buick a bit differently though. He knew that with a few little touches (like a 502 cubic inch big-block, modern suspension, and a new set of wheels) that this old Buick had the potential to become one of the baddest hot-rods around.
